Boy oh boy is google trends fun. I just pop in a few variables, and let google pop out some lines that tell me whatever I want it to tell me. For instance, did you know that Wanderlei Silva was MORE POPULAR THAN CUPCAKES over New Years Eve? That’s right! Who would have imagined that interest across the world for our favorite Brazilian toilet paper salesman would eclipse the delicious taste of a well baked cupcake?
Also interesting to note is that testicles are way more popular than Gina Carano – EXCEPT just after her debut on American Gladiators. For that period right around January 2008, Ms Carano was bigger than our nuts.
What a sad state of affairs America is in. ABORTION is more popular than Quinton “Rampage” Jackson! You’d think if the UFC did a better job of marketing him, then abortion wouldn’t be quite so popular. Lets just hope that TUF7 makes the difference.
However, thanks to the push from UFC81, Brock Lesnar went from barely beating female circumcision to totally trouncing it. Of course, perhaps if more people knew about the horrors of female circumcision instead of how gay Brock Lesnar is, the world would be a better place.
Last but not least, I thought I’d just throw this one out there. It doesn’t really have anything to do with MMA but maybe it’ll get you thinking. I almost put Britney Spears or Lindsay Lohan in there but the results were too damned depressing.
